I finally got my Apple TV generation 2 jailbroken. Why you ask? Well, I am after XBMC so that I can stream files from my DLNA server. I used Pwnage tool. Check out http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/5239805497/tic-tac-toe for more information. Check your firmware version also. When I did it, I was running version 4.2.2 but it was the second version and I had to apply a bundle inside the Pwnage.app file. You can check out http://xbmc.org if you don’t know what XBMC is. Anyway, here’s a video I made. I hope you like it.
Using iJailbreak I am now able to install 3rd party applications on my iPod Touch. The hack is based on niacinand dre’s hack for the iPhone which uses an exploit found in the Safari browser. I nervously did it this morning and 10 minutes later I was able to download a long lists of free 3rd party applications. Now I just gotta figure out how to get ssh and sftp on there so I can get some NES roms installed. Here’s some pics I took.
